In the unique vignette format of the Pearls Series?, this book presents a variety of problems that challenge emergency physicians in everyday practice. For each patient, the authors present the case scenario, physical findings, lab data, and a clinical photo, and the reader is challenged to formulate a diagnosis and a treatment strategy. The next page reveals the diagnosis, discusses the condition, and leaves the reader with several "pearls of wisdom" distilled from the case.
